Is it abruptio or placenta previa that bleeds when placenta is low?

These are usually away from the cervix and can be associated with cramping, pain, or heavy bleeding. If you have a previa, let your doc know if you bleed. ...Read more

Early ultrasound: Assuming your question is regarding the location of the placenta. An early ultrasound indicating a low lying placenta will be repeated later in pregnancy. Most will migrate to attain better blood supply away from the cervix. Very few remain low lying. If it does, then your doctor will follow you closely for signs of bleeding. At this point, a problem but one that will probably resolve. ...Read more

Intrauterine low lying viable fetus at 8 weeks.172 bpm.can travel.can have intercourse. ..pls explain?

Puts you at risk: Honestly, a low lying fetus means there is a higher chance for developing placenta previa, where part or all of the placenta lies over the cervix. There is less blood supply in the lower part of the uterus and so miscarriage chance is a little higher, as is risk for growth restriction, preterm birth, and need for c-section. Avoid heavy lifting, sex until 2nd trimester, smoking, stress, traveling ...Read more

What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?

What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?

Hyst'omy MANDATED: hello Annie-_777 I am not an OB GYN but I have had a lot of experience which tells me that a lower abdominal incision (Pfannen-Stiel) is a better incision in almost all situations. This situation of a transverse lie and an anterior placenta praevia is a very hazardous situation because you need the baby out and the cord clamped within seconds of opening the uterus so choose a very skilled surgeon. ...Read more

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more
